If your in the US I think the copyright expire 75 years after the book was first copyrighted and 75 years after the authors death... which ever is the later date.

In Canada it is 50 years.

Do US copyright laws apply to american books in Canada? That is it illegal to re-publish or re-use materials from a book that is orignally from the US but republished in, say in Canada. Which law applies?

Speaking of "Blade Runner" *grin* I noticed that one of Wikipedia's entries for Philip K. Dick claims that the 1954 short story "The Adjustment Team" upon which the new movie ADJUSTMENT BUREAU is based is no longer under copyright. Yet one of the daughters of PKD is the film's executive producer. If the story is really PD, why is she involved? Curious.

And no, the book I'm looking into PD status on isn't by PKD. :)
